    Histories
    Thomas Stanley Granger Volunteer Enlistment and Recruit Statement, August 1862
    Thomas Stanley Granger Volunteer Enlistment and Recruit Statement, August 1862
    Thomas S. Granger must have looked young at the time, because they made him get his mothers signature to validate his age. Actually early in the war (1861) there was a huge problem with underage kids signing up. If the parents caught the unit before it left the local courts jurisdiction a writ of habeus corpus could be issued. This would tie up the regimental commander, the company commander, and the recruiting officers up in court. At this point in the war recruiters made sure the paper work was correct.

  • Notes 
    • Likely named after his uncle, Thomas Stanley Denike.

      Thomas and his brother, William H. volunteered to fight in the Civil War, joining the 48th N.Y. on August 19,1862. Both served through the war. Thomas was wounded in the right leg late in the war, and was discharged from Mower Hospital July 7, 1865.  William H. was discharged on June 27, 1865 at Raleigh N.C. 
       
      Thomas married Ellen J. Crawford, nickname "Jennie" and they had three children.  Elizabeth 1879 Robert 1884 and George 1888.  Jennie died on March 4, 1895 and is buried as "Jennie" in the Granger family plot in Greenwood. 

      Thomas was collecting a disability pension from the war, about $8.00 a month as near as I can tell.  In December of 1896 Thomas packed the three children off to in-laws.  Crawfords and Kirckpatricks.  He checked himself into The National Home for Volunteer soldiers.  He lived in three different soldiers homes and finally passed away in Dayton, Ohio on January 23, 1916.  Thomas is buried in the Dayton National Cemetery in Dayton Ohio section 1 row 14 site 29.
